Hey Montage, there may be some nice housing over on Arkwright, have a look.

Montage Health, the parent organization of the Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula, is hoping to attract clinicians to the area by providing them with short-term housing options.

The non-profit company announced Monday its purchase of two apartment buildings expected to be completed at the end of the year at 230 Lighthouse and 255 Foam Street in New Monterey for $9 million. The 32-apartment units that are part of developer Carl Outzen’s three-story mixed use project, will provide short-term housing to newly-hired doctors, nurses and other clinicians while they secure permanent housing.
